Novel high-precision gene therapy to correct an eye disease in mice

Researchers from the Seoul National University (Korea) have applied for the first an improved genome-editing methodology, named prime editing to correct the genetic defects of two animal models of human disease: a liver disease (hereditary tyrosinemia) and an eye disease (Leber congenital amaurosis). This high-precision genome-editing tool, developed only two years ago by the team of David R. Liu from...

A revolutionary CRISPR gene editing technique applied for the first time to a patient with a visual disorder

The patient, treated at the Casey Eye Institute in Portland, Oregon, belongs to a group of 18 people affected with Leber congenital amaurosis. These patients will participate in the BRILLIANCE study, the first clinical trial to determine the safety and efficacy of a therapy based on the CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing technique (AGN-151587, EDIT-101). It is the first example of an...

Researchers devise a novel, high-precision, gene-editing tool to fix genetic diseases

18/11/19 - Gene editing, Gene Therapy,

In recent years, a powerful gene-editing technology called CRISPR-Cas9 has revolutionized biology turning the process of genome modification into an easy and inexpensive process. This revolutionary technique makes use of molecular tools that allow precise identification of DNA fragments –for example a gene– and either introduce modifications, delete a genomic fragment, or even insert a new DNA fragment or a...
